SUMMARY: On September 6, 2011, the Department of Commerce (the Department) published the preliminary results of the antidumping duty administrative review for certain corrosion-resistant carbon steel flat products (CORE) from the Republic of Korea (Korea).1 This review covers eight manufacturers and/or exporters (collectively, the respondents) of the subject merchandise: LG Chem., Ltd. (LG Chem); Haewon MSC Co. Ltd. (Haewon); Dongbu Steel Co., Ltd., (Dongbu); Hyundai HYSCO (HYSCO); Pohang Iron & Steel Co., Ltd. (POSCO) and Pohang Coated Steel Co., Ltd. (POCOS) (collectively, POSCO); Dongkuk Industries Co., Ltd. (Dongkuk); LG Hausys, Ltd. (Hausys); and Union Steel Manufacturing Co., Ltd. (Union).2 The period of review (POR) is August 1, 2009, through, July 31, 2010. As a result of our analysis of the comments received, these final results differ from the Preliminary Results. For our final results, we find that Union and Dongbu made sales of subject merchandise at less than normal value (NV), and POSCO and HYSCO have not made sales of subject merchandise at less than NV. In addition, based on the final results for the respondents selected for individual review, we have determined a weighted-average margin for those companies that were not selected for individual review. Further, the Department has determined to revoke this antidumping duty order, in part, with respect to entries from POSCO. DATES: Effective Date: March 12, 2012. AGENCY: 1 See Certain Corrosion-Resistant Carbon Steel Flat Products From the Republic of Korea: Notice of Preliminary Results of the Seventeenth Antidumping Duty Administrative Review, 76 FR 55004 (September 6, 2011) (Preliminary Results). 2 As noted in the Preliminary Results, the Department selected HYSCO, POSCO, Dongbu, and Union as mandatory respondents in this review. See Memorandum from Dennis McClure, International Trade Compliance Analyst, through James Terpstra, Program Manager, to Melissa Skinner, Director, Office 3, entitled ‘‘17th Antidumping Duty Administrative Review of Corrosion-Resistant Carbon Steel Flat Products from the Republic of Korea: Selection of Respondents for Individual Review,’’ dated October 29, 2010.
